New features at a glance


The Calliope mini 3 is equipped with 3 RGB LEDs that can be controlled together or separately to create magical lighting effects.

On the back of the Calliope mini is another touch pin in the shape of the Calliope logo.

The 3 status LEDs give you information about the power supply (red), the data transmission (yellow) and the activity of the microphone (red).

With the help of the integrated pin strip, movement comes into play in no time - motors and extensions can be plugged in very easily.

Using the additional Jacdac connectors, different modules can be combined in any way. Jacdac also allows direct exchange via WebUSB with a connected computer - connect e.g. buzzers, LED rings and potentiometers.

The new Calliope mini now features two fast Nordic processors, the nRF52820 interface processor (for USB-C communication) and the nRF52833 application processor (for program execution).
